CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1884. 

THE SUN IS THE RULING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General. — The Solar year is dry 
throughout, n little damp, and tolerably warm. 

Spring. — Will be temperate, in the beginning tolera- 
bly humid, especially in April it will be very changea- 
ble; May will be pleasant and dry, but near its close it 
will be chilly with froet; hence the sheep should be 
kept off the grain, and as much as possible from the 
mealows. 

Summer. — June will not be too secure from frost, be- 
siiles it will be very dry. The beginning of August 
will be windy, afterwards, clear and calm. The days 
will be hot, but the nights cool. The Summer in gen- 
eral will be pleasant, yet it will end with tempestuous 
weather. 

Fall and Winter.— Will be agreeable, dry and fine; 
frost and freezing will be early, yet the cold will be 
moderate ; rough unpleasant weather in the beginning, 
which will soon change for the better. February will 
begin with pleasant weather, and will end very cold, 
which will continue in March. 

Spring Crops — Must be sown as early as possible. 



Barley and oats will grow very slowly, yet good in grain. 
But few peas and beans, unless planted in well manured, 
moist ground. Flax and hemp will be thin and short. 
Very littte hay. Sheep should be kept from the pasture 
early in the Spring. Aftermath will be good. Cabbage 
and turnips will be poor on account of drought. 

Fall Crops. — The yield of wheat and corn will be 
small, but the quality very good. Suffer no sheep on 
the grain in the Spring. 

Fall Seeding. — The fall sowing should be put in 
deep, so that in the following bard winter it will not 
freeze out. It will not be necessary to sow very early. 

Fruit.— Pears will yield better than apples. Cher- 
ries, nuts, quinces, and acorns, abundant. Corn, buck- 
wheat rice, and tobacco will grow well. Potatoes, cab- 
bage, and turnips, middling. 

Grape Culture. — If in the preceding year grapes did 
not yield well, they will do well this year, for Mars, the 
Sun, and Venus following, make every seven years a 
good wine year.

THE ZOAN OF THE BIBLE. 



In Egypt, as well as in Palestine, modern re • 
search is illustrating and confirming the records 
of the sacred writers. The Athenceum says that 
the Egypt Exploration Fund purposes to under- 
take, as the object of next expedition, the exca- 
vation of the vast mounds of San, the Zoan of 
the Bible, the Tanis of the Greeks. 

The ruins of this famous city are as yet 
scarcely touched by the spade of the explorer, 
and the mounds, among the most extensive in 
Egypt, promise a rich harvest in objects of Bib- 
lical and other historical interest. Here, in the 
nearest large city to the land of Goshen, it is rea- 
sonable to expect that exploration may be re- 
warded by the discovery of documents bearing

BRE THREN 1 S ALMANAC 



[1884 




on the history of the Hebrews during the four 
hundred and thirty years of the sojourn, respect- 
ing which the Bible is almost silent. It is even 
possible that monuments and interments of the 
Hebrews during the time of their prosperity 
may be brought to light. Here lies buried the 
lost history of the mysterious Hyksos, or Shep- 
herd-kings, who are supposed to have ruled 
Egypt for upwards of five hundred years. It 
was at San that Mariette found those remarkable 
monuments now in the Boorlak Museum, which 
have revealed the artistic style of those foreign 
rulers, portrayed their peculiar type of race, and 
given us a glimpse of their historical reality. 
The one Shepherd-king whose name occurs 
upon those monuments as the great builder of 
Zoan, is the traditional Pharaoh of Joseph. 

The discovery of more documents relating to 
his reign becomes, therefore, a matter of pecu- 
liar interest and importance. If Zoan appears 
to have been the residence of the Pharaoh of 
Joseph, it was certainly a favorite city of Ram- 
ses II., the oppressor of the Israelites, and of 
their successors. He in fact restored and built 
here with lavish splendor. Here, therefore, if 
anywhere, may be expected the records of the 
later as well as of the earlier period of the He- 
brew sojourn. Here, also, we may hope to 
solve another problem in Egyptian history, and 
to discover whether the priest-kings, in whose 
family vault was found the great trouvaille of 
royal mummies at Deyrel-Bahri, were or were 
not a Tanite dynasty. This question is also 
Biblically interesting, for it concerns the alli- 
ance and marriage of Solomon, and the rise of 
his opponent, Shishak, the founder of a new 
family, which continued the embellishment of 
the shrines of Zoan. 

The city of Zoan was not only the chief city 
of the Delta during the most interesting of two or 
three thousand years of Egyptian history, but it 
was the key of the northeastern frontier, the 
great center of border history, and the seat of 
government nearest the land Goshen. No site 
in Egypt, or in the whole East, is known to be 
so rich in buried monuments, numbers of which 
just show themselves on the surface of the 
mounds. None, certainly, is richer in historic 
promise. 



THE BEST CULTIVATED COUNTY IN 
AMERICA. 



One of the very best cultivated counties in 
the whole Republic is said to be Lancaster 
county, Pennsylvania, originally settled by Men- 
nonites, Moravians, and Dunkers, who fled from 
Germany and Holland to avoid persecutions 
during the eighteenth century. They were 
mining and agricultural people, and their de- 
scendants to-day follow the same callings that 
their ancestors did. Lancaster was laid out in 
1729, and was the fourth county in the State. 
It contains 928 square miles; the value of the 
farms is estimated at about $80,000,000, of its 
agricultural products nearly $20,000,000, and 
its mineral some $16,000,000. The population 
is about 226,000. The farms are small, from 
50 to 100 acres generally. A farm of 200 acres 
is very rare. These are seldom sold. They are 
handed down from sire to son. These people 
are among the most industrious, thrifty, and 
conservative of our country. They have chang- 
ed very little during the last 150 years, preserving 
the same language, habits and customs that they 
had a century ago. They work hard, pay their 
debts, prosper materially, and attend to their 
own business. If the American people, gener- 
ally, understood farming, and the principles of 
economy as they do, this country would be bet- 
ter cultivated and possess a higher degree of 
prosperity. — Selected. 



WHAT "WIFE" MEANS. 



Says Ruskin : " What do you think the beau- 
tiful word, ' wife,' means? It is the great word 
in which the English and Latin languages con- 
quered the French and Greek. I hope the 
French will some day get a word for it instead 
of ' femme. ' But what do you think it comes 
from ? The great value of the Saxon words is 
that they mean something. Wife means 'weav- 
er. ' You must either be house-wives or house- 
moths, remember that. In the deep sense you 
must either weave men's fortunes and embroider 
them, or feed upon and bring them to decay. 
Wherever a true wife comes, home is always 
around her. The stars may be overhead, the 
glow-worm in the night's cold grass may be the 
fire at her feet, but home is where she is, and for 
a noble woman it stretches far around her, better 
than houses ceiled with cedar or painted with 
vermillion — shedding its quiet for those who else 
are homeless. This, I believe, is the woman's 
true place and power. ' '

[1884. 




CHILDREN'S FRIENDS. 



I know that children's company is apt to 
make some trouble to a home-mother, but it is 
the kind of trouble that pays. It makes chil- 
dren so much happier to have their little friends 
made welcome at their own home. It raises 
mother in their esteem to have other little folks 
think she is "nice." Children are sharp little 
critics; form their opinions and speak of them 
to others, quite as decidedly as their elders do. 

A little girl, who had displeased her mother, 
was "punished" by having her little playmate 
sent home with sharp and angry words, which 
were entirely unmerited. The heart of the little 
visitor was greatly shocked at the rude blow to 
her spirit, and never, even to grown-up years, 
could look at that woman except with aversion. 
She was an excellent woman in the main, but 
she had her "cross spells," like some others we 
know. Every person appears at his worst when 
such spells are on. 

It is an excellent thing to know with whom 
your children play and how they deport them- 
selves. If they are made welcome at your 
home, you have the very best opportunity for 
gaining this information. It need not be very 
irksome if you keep the number within bounds. 
In Summer our little visitors like to sit with their 
playthings in the shady porches, or in the door- 
way. In cold weather they can have the warm 
dining-room. If disposed to run over the house 
it is sufficient to say decidedly: "Don't run up 
stairs, please, just play in the dining-room," 
and I have never known a child to disregard the 
request. 

It is worth a great deal to make children 
happy. They remember little treats longer 
than we suppose. A lady once said that one of 
the pleasantest recollections of her childhood 
was that of sitting on a grassy bank, and of a 
fair hand reaching from a window and placing a 
handful of large, delicious strawberries in her 
lap. 

I often set out a plate of sandwiches, cookies, 
apples, or whatever is handiest in the pantry, 
and then let the little girls arrange them to suit 
themselves on their little sprigged tea-set. A 



little coffee and sugar and milk in their small 
dishes make their happiness complete. 

Be a lady to your boy's friends and leave a 
good impression upon them, if you wish to re- 
tain the respect of your own dear boy. It hurts 
boys' feelings, and mortifies them intensely, to 
have mother speak snappishly to them before com- 
panions, making them feel that they are not 
wanted. Such boys are apt to wander away, 
with most resentful feelings, to seek such com- 
pany as the mother would dread to have for 
their associates. But whom should she blame 
most for it? 



ADVICE IN BRIEF TO DYSPEPTICS. 



Avoid pork, fat meats, grease, gravies, pas- 
tries, spices, confectioneries, tea, coffee, alco- 
holic drinks, beer, malt liquors of all kinds. 

Let your food be plain, simple, wholesome — 
chiefly fruits and vegetables. Let your bread be 
made of unbolted wheatmeal. 

Take your meal regularly; if three, let the 
supper be very sparing. 

Eat slowly, lightly, masticate thoroughly. Be- 
ware of hot food and drinks. 

Avoid luncheons by all means. 

Exercise freely in the open air; never sit 
moping, but turn your mind entirely from your 
disease and trouble. 

Keep regular hours; rise early; exercise gent- 
ly half an hour before breakfast. 

Bathe frequently; keep the skin clean, the 
pores open. 

Keep your feet dry; let the soles of your 
shoes be thick, that no dampness may penetrate 
them. 

Keep your sitting and sleeping rooms well 
ventilated. Invpure air is enough to kill a well 
person — it kills thousands. 

Wear loose-fitting garments, especially about 
the region of the lungs. 

Banish the pipe, quid, and snuff-box as the 
plague, forever and forever. Of all the dyspep- 
sia breeders and promoters, nothing exceeds the 
use of the "Indian weed." 

Keep away from the apothecary; avoid all 
quack medicines and nostrums. 

Finally, keep a conscience void of offense; 
pray God to forgive your past sins of gluttony 
and intemperance ; for no one who lives temper- 
ately, as he should live, will ever be troubled 
with dyspepsia. The violation of law cries out 
for vengeance — and vengeance it has sooner or 
later. — Phrenological fournal.

BRETHREN' S ALMANAC. 



[1884 




A RULE FOR TELLING DATES WITHOUT 
AN ALMANAC. 



First, observe the first seven letters of the 
alphabet are used, in their order, to represent 
the seven days of the week. Next, commit to 
memory the following names : Andrew D. Day, 
Geo. B. East, Gordon C. Fay, Adam D. Feast. 

The first, or initial letter of each name repre- 
sents, in its order, the first day of each month 
of the year: thus, A repersents January ist, D 
February ist, D March ist, and so on. These 
always remain the same. 

Next, observe what Dominical (Lord's Day or 
Sunday) letter or letters are used for the year. 
They are generally given in the first part of our 
almanacs. The Dominical letters for 1884 are 
F and E. (Leap years always require two, one 
for January and February, and one for the re- 
maining ten months.) Thus, having the Do- 
minical letters we are ready to tell dates. 

Suppose we desire to know what day of the 
week the 6th of January, 1884, will be, we just 
bear in mind that the first initial is A, hence the 
first letter will be A, second B, third C, fourth 
D, fifth E, and sixth F. Finding the Diminical 
letter for January and February, it follows then 
that the 6th will be Sunday. Again, should it 
be desired to find on what day the 4th of July 
will fall, we look for the initial letter of the 
seventh, and we find it to be G. We also re- 
member that the Lord's Day letter for the last 
ten months of 1884 is E. Then, if G is the 
ist, A will be the 2d, B the 3d, C the 4th, D 
the 5th, and E the 6th, which is Sunday; then, 
if the 6th is Sunday, the 4th will be Friday. 
Again, suppose we want to know on what day 
of the month the fourth Sunday in June will 
come. We find the sixth initial to be E, it is 
also the Lord's Day letter, hence, the ist will 
be Sunday, add seven and the second Sunday 
will be the 8th, the third the 15 th, and the 
fourth will be the 2 2d of June. 

In like manner proceed with each and all the 
months. It must be borne in mind that leap 
years have two Dominical letters — one for Janu- 
ary and February, and one for the other ten 
months. 



If any should desire to ascertain the Domini- 
cal letters without looking at an almanac he can 
do so by using the above named letters back- 
ward. Thus F and E for 1884, D for 1885, (' 
1886, and so on. When A is reached return to 
G. 

I have arranged and present the above with a 
view that it may be of benefit to travelling min- 
isters and others, when an almanac is not at 
hand. When one becomes familiar with this 
rule, or any similiar one, he can often ascertain 
the day of the week or of the month before he 
could open an almanac and find it there.

HOW TO SPOIL A CHILD. 



1. Begin by giving him whatever he cries for. 

2. Talk freely before him about his great 
smartness. 

3. Tell him he is too much for you, that you 
can do nothing with him. 

4. Let him learn to regard his father as a 
creature of unlimited power, capricious, and 
tyrannical — or as a mere whipping-machine. 

5. Let him learn (from his father's example) 
to despise his mother. 

6. Do not care who or what his companions 
may be. 

7. Let him read stories about pirates, Indian 
fighters, and so on. 

8. Let him roam the streets in the evening 
and go to bed late. 

9. Devote yourself to making money, remem- 
bering always that wealth is a better legacy for 
your child than principles in the heart and 
habits of life; and let him have plenty of money 
to spend. 



PERFUME OF PIETY. 



The staff of a printing office were once sur- 
prised and delighted by a delicious perfume 
which suddenly filled every part of the room. 
Upon inquiry, it was found that one had passed 
through the office who, being constantly occupi- 
ed with sweet spices and odorous drugs, became 
literally saturated with fragrance. The conse- 
quence was, that wherever he went, he diffused 
a delicious sweetness, evoking such surprise as : 
" Where has the man come from?" "What is 
the secret of this sweetness? " This illustrates 
the fragrance of the CrgjhlififtgtW* tat^jorth in 
Psalms xiv. 8: "A^r^V r ^ar*ie\ifi? iptall of

BRETHREN' 8 ALMANAC 



[1884 




THE DAY AND YEAR OF CHRIST'S 
CRUCIFIXION. 



Judge Bradley, of the Supreme court, has con- 
tributed to the Evangelist an article on the day 
and year of Christ's crucifixion. The work is 
thoroughly done by analytical historical analysis 
and astronomical calculations. The Judge says : 

"The cardinal conditions required by these 
data, are, first, that the time must be brought 
within the Procuratorship of Pontius Pilate ; sec- 
ondly, it must be after the fifteenth year of the 
reign of Tiberius, and after the thirtieth of 
Christ's age; thirdly, it must occur on the 15th 
of the Jewish month Nisan (or Abib), and on 
the sixth day of the week, or Friday. 

The Judge states the verified history very care- 
fully, and says : 

"John's preaching commenced in the year 
26, and Jesus was baptized and commenced 
preaching at the end of 26, or beginning of 27. 
His first Passover, after he commenced his pub- 
lic ministry, would be either that which took 
place in the spring of 27, or that which took 
place in the spring of 28. It is certain that the 
crucifixion could not have taken place earlier 
than A. D. 28, and it is not probable that it took 
place earlier than A. D. 31. 

" Matthew tells us : ' Now the first day of the 
feast of unleavened bread the Disciples came to 
Jesus, saying unto him : Where wilt Thou that 
we prepare for Thee to eat the Passover?' etc. 
(Matt. 26: 17.) Luke says: 'Then came the 
day of unleavened bread, when the Passover 
must be killed. And he sent Peter and John, 
saying : Go and prepare us the Passover that 
we may eat, etc., (Luke 22:7, 8.) Then fol- 
lowed the Last Supper and Gethsemane ; and 
the next morning (the 15th of Nisan, of course) 
Jesus was condemned and crucified. 

* ' I shall assume that the day was the sixth day 
of the week, or Friday — the day preceding the 
Sabbath, the preparation day. That is almost 
the universal understanding of Christendom. 
There are some, it is true, who contend for some 
other day, just as there are some who say that 
Shakespeare did not write the plays that go by 
his name. But I will not stop to argue the 
point. 



" We are able to find, then, a year from 28 to 
31 inclusive, in which the 15th, and of course, 
the 1st, of Nisan, fell on Friday. 

" Taking the Roman Calendar as the standard 
of comparison, and the longitude of Jerusalem 
(35 degrees, 18 minutes, 30 seconds east) as the 
point for regulating time, and midnight as the 
commencement of the day, it was found by cal- 
culation, based on the ordinary astronomical 
tables, that the vernal equinox in the former 
half of the first century occurred in the afternoon 
or evening of the 22nd of March. Therefore 
the full moon of Nisan ought not to happen be- 
fore that day, and the preceding new moon 
ought not to happen before the 7th of March. 
Therefore the new moon, marking the 1st of Ni- 
san, must happen between the 7th of March and 
the 7th of April." 

A table of calculation is made, from which it 
is apparent that in A. D. 27 : 

" The new moon, which occurred on the 26th 
of March, was first visible, (according to Sel- 
den's rule) on Thursday evening, March 27, 
when the 1st of IJisan commenced, and contin- 
ued until sunset of Friday evening, March 28th. 
For our purpose the 1st of Nisan was Friday, 
March 28th. And in like manner, attending to 
the respective times of new moon in the other 
years contained in the table, it is equally appar- 
ent that the 1st of Nisan occurred in A. D. 28, 
Tuesday, March 16th; in A. D. 29, Monday, 
April 4th ; in A. D. 30, Friday, March 24th ; 
in A. D. 31, Tuesday, March 13th; in A. D. 
32, Monday, March 31st; in A. D. 33, either 
Friday, March 20th, or Saturday, March 21st 
(uncertain which); in A. D. 34, Wednesday, 
March 10th; and in A. D. 35, Tuesday, March 
29th. The moons here taken for the month 
Nisan exactly agree with the cycle before re- 
ferred to. 

' k Thus we see there were only three years from 
A. D. 27 to A. D. 35, inclusive, in which the 
1st of Nisan, and consequently the 15th of Ni- 
san, happened Friday; and these were A. D. 
27, 30 and ^^, the last of which is very doubtful. 
But we have already seen that the Crucifixion 
could not have happened before A. D. 28, and 
propably not later than A. D. 31. Therefore 
the year 30 is the only one which satisfies all the 
conditions of the problem. It does satisfy them, 
because it gives opportunity for Jesus to teach 
publicly for about three years, and to attend 
three Passovers during his ministry, or four, ac- 
cording as it commenced before or after April, 
A. D. 27. 

" Now, since in A. D. 30 the 1st of Nisan fell

wanted only one thing to make me happy," 
Hazlitt writes ; ' ' but, wanting that, have want- 
ed every thing." And' again, " My heart, shut 
up in the prison-house of this rude clay, has nev- 
er found, nor will it ever find, a heart to speak 
to. ' ' We are the weakest of spendthrifts if we 
let one friend drop off through inattention, or 
let one push away another, or if we hold aloof 
from one for petty jealousy, or heedless slight or 
roughness. Would you throw away a diamond 
because it pricked you ? A friend is not to be 
weighed against the jewels of all the earth. If 
there is coolness or unkindness between us, let 
us come face to face, and have it out, quick, be- 
fore love grows cold. " Life is too short to quar- 
rel in." 



TO ATTAIN LONG LIFE. 



He who strives after a long and pleasant term 
of life must seek to attain continual equanimity, 
and carefully avoid everything which too vio- 
lently taxes the feelings. Nothing more quickly 
consumes the vigor of life than the violence of 
the emotions of the mind. We know that anx- 
iety and care can destroy the healthiest body , 
we know that fright and fear, yes, excess of joy, 
become deadly. They who are naturally cool 
and of a quiet turn of mind, upon whom nothing 
can make too powerful an impression, who are 
not wont to be excited either by great sorrow or 
great joy, have the best chance of living long 
and happy after their manner. Preserve, there- 
fore, under all circumstances, a composure of 
mind which no happiness, no misfortune, can 
too much disturb. Love nothing too violently; 
hate nothing too passionately; fear nothing too 
strongly. 



THE HABIT OF UNTRUTH. 



Some men seem to have a constitutional in- 
ability to tell the simple truth. They may not 
mean to lie, or tell an untruth, but they are 
careless — careless in hearing, careless in under- 
standing, careless in repeating, what is said to 
them. These well-meaning but reckless people 
do more mischief than those who intentionally 
foment strife by deliberate falsehood. There is no 
firebrand like your well-meaning busybody, who 
is continually in search of scandal, and by sheer 
habit misquotes everybody's statements. 

This carelessness is a sin of no small magni 
tude. A man's duty to God and his fellows 
requires him to be careful. For what else were 
brains and common sense given him? Of 
course that other class, the malignant scandal- 
mongers who take fiendish pleasure in promo- 
ting strife, who deliberately garble men's words, 
and twist their sentiments, is in the minority, 
and people have a very decided opinion regard- 
ing them. Most men misrepresent because they 
do not seem to think that care in speaking the 
truth is a pre-eminent duty. 

The effects of this careless misrepresenting of 
others is seen everywhere. Its effects on the in- 
dividual is to confirm him in a habit of loose, 
distorted and exaggerated statement, until telling 
the truth becomes a moral impossibility. No 
other thing causes so many long-standing friend- 
ships to be broken, so many dissensions in church- 
es, so much evil everywhere. It is an abuse that 
calls for the rebuke of every honorable man — a 
rebuke that should be given, not only in words 
whenever occasion demands, but by example. 

The Persians were said to teach their youth 
three things: to ride, to draw the bow, and to 
speak the truth. A little more instruction on this 
head would do no harm to our "advanced civ- 
ilization." 



WHAT FATHER TAKES. 



" What will you take to drink ?' ' asked a wait- 
er of a young lad who, for the first time, accom- 
panied his father to a public dinner. Uncertain 
what to say, and feeling sure that he could not 
be wrong if he followed his father's example, he 
replied, "I '11 take what father takes." 

The answer reached his father's ears, and in- 
stantly the full responsibility of his position 
flashed upon him. If he said, "I'll take ale," as 
he had always said before, his son would take it 
also, and then ! And the father shuddered as 
the history of several young men, once promise

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1884 




ing as his own bright lad, and ruined by drink, 
started up in solemn warning before him. Should 
his hopes also be blasted, and that open-faced 
lad become a burden ? But for strong drink, 
they would have been active, earnest, prosperous 
men ; and if it could work such ruin upon them, 
was his own lad safe ? Quicker than lightning 
these thoughts passed through his mind, and in 
a moment the decision was made. " If the boy 
falls, he will not have me to blame," and then 
in tones tremulous with emotion, and to the as- 
tonishment of those who knew him, he said, 
" Waiter, I'll take water;" and from that day 
to this strong drink has been banished from that 
man's table and from that man's home. 



UNCLAIMED RICHES. 



There is a story told of an old Indian who 
was welcome wherever he was known, who lived 
a miserable life by begging. A kind settler, who 
knew him well, asked him what it was he car- 
ried about his neck. He said that it was a 
charm to keep away evil spirits and disease. On 
opening the old leather cover of the charm, the 
settler found a regular discharge for the Indian 
from the Revolutionary army, and a certificate in 
the writing of George Washington that would 
entitle him to a pension every year, and to 
many years of back pay. He supposed himself 
to be a poor, miserable beggar, and here was a 
fortune for him. So we go on. The promises 
and engagements of God's Word are worthy of 
princes. They would make of us kings and 
priests and sons of God. And yet we live in 
pinching spiritual poverty. Let us look up our 
unclaimed possessions, and inherit the promises. 



INFLUENCE OF A HOLY LIFE. 



There is an energy of moral suasion in a good 
man's life, passing the highest efforts of orator's 
genius. The seen but silent beauty of holiness 
speaks more eloquently of God and duty than 
the tongues of men and angels. Let parents 
remember this. The best inheritance a parent 
can bequeath to a child is a virtuous example, 
a legacy of hallowed remembrances and associa- 



tions. The beauty of holiness beaming through 
the life of a loved relative or friend, is more 
effectual to strengthen such as do stand in vir- 
tue's ways, and raise up such as be bowed down, 
than precept, command, entreaty or warning. 
Christianity itself, I believe, owes by far the 
greater part of its moral power — not to the pre- 
cepts or parables of Christ — but to His own 
character. The beauty of that holiness whicli 
is enshrined in the four brief biographies of the 
Man of Nazareth, has done more, and will do 
more, to regenerate the world and bring in ever- 
lasting righteousness, than all the other agencies 
put together. It has done more to spread His 
religion in the world, than all that has been 
preached or written on the evidences of Chris- 
tianity. — Chalmers. 

SHEDDING ONE'S SKIN. 



No animal is exempt from the operations of 
the law of desquemation. Birds shed their feath- 
ers annually, serpents their skins, quadrupeds 
their hair, and lobsters and crabs their shells. 

So it is with humanity. The skin, instead 
of being thrown off annually, as with those re- 
ferred to, is all the time wearing off, and there- 
fore constantly being renewed. 

The scarf skin is insensible. It is the true 
skin or cutis veva what the rough, scaly bark of 
a tree is to the vitalized coat immediately under 
it. In the use of our hands, feet and ordinary 
exercise of the body, fragments of skin are con- 
stantly rubbed off, so that it may be truly said 
every living person is always shedding that tis- 
sue. 

If that process were interrupted, as it is parti- 
ally, by some who neglect to avail themselves of 
the benefits of water, the pores become clogged, 
and their utility in the preservation of health de 
stroyed. Thus the actual amount of scarf-skin 
dropping off, rubbed off, and washed off in a 
year, would be about equal to the thickness and 
weight of a thin sheep-skin. 



There no fires that will melt out our drossy 
and corrupt particles like God's refining fires of 
duty and trial, living as he sends us to live, in 
the open field of the world's sins and sorrows, 
its plausibilites and lies, its persecution, and ani- 
mosities and fears, its eager delights and bitter 
wants, if we still keep him in view in all. — 
BushnelL 



If you would have a faithful servant and one 
that you like, serve yourself. — Franklin.

B RE T H R E N' S ALMANAC 



[1884. 




ELDER JOHN W. PURSLY. 



The subject of the following sketch was born 
in Botetourt county, Virginia, in the year 1825, 
and, at the time of his death, which occurred 
July 31st, 1883, was fifty-eight years, five 
months, of age. Little is known of his early 
life, except that he was a sober, intelligent, and 
industrious young man, quietly and energetic- 
ally working in the various occupations com- 
mon to country life. His educational oppor- 
tunities were very limited, and he never re- 
ceived more than the simplest instruction in 
reading, writing, and the elements of Arithme- 
tic. This, in after life, was a source of regret 
to his many friends who felt that his remarka- 
bly good mind would have been much strength- 
ened, and his human powers for good largely 
increased, could he in early life have received 
a liberal education. But circumstances would 
not allow this blessing, and the necessity for 
the most unremitting toil, for the support of 
himself and family, under which he labored 
to the close of his life, made it impossible for 
him to do much in the way of self inrprove- 
ment. God only knows how much the church 
and the world has lost, because of the great 
numbers of young men of superior intellectual 
endowments who, for the want of means and 
opportunities, are denied the blessing of an 
education, and are compelled to spend their 
lives in comparative obscurity and drudgery. 
At the age of twenty-five he united with the 
Methodist Church, and continued for ten 
years a faithful and useful member of that 
fraternity. Up to thirty-three years of age he 
had little or no acquaintance with the Breth- 
ren, but about that time he read "Nead's 
Theology " which made a deep impression on 
his mind. About the same time, also, the 
brethren of the Botetourt church, in the prose- 
cution of their missionary labors after the old 
fashion, commenced a series of meetings in an 
old church, not far away, and upon hearing 
their presentation of the Gospel, as we under- 
stand it, the favorable impressions already 
made upon his mind by reading Nead's works, 
were strengthened and confirmed. From this 
point he invited them to preach in Bethesda 



church, in his own immediate neighborhood, 
where, at his earliest opportunity, he dissolved 
his connection with the Methodist communion 
and joined the Church of the Brethren. 

The Botetourt missionaries, principally El- 
ders Peter Nininger and B. F. Moomaw, now- 
grown gray in the Master's service, continued 
their preaching at this place, and, from time 
to time, " added to the church such as should 
be saved." 

Two years after his baptism brother Pursly 
was elected to the ministry and, at the age of 
thirty-five, began his life work. I have known 
brethren to be elected to the ministry in mid- 
dle or after middle life, to be greatly discour- 
aged by the reflection that their best days, and 
all the precious opportunities for self-improve- 
ment and profitable exercise in the Master's 
work, were past, and the}^ had now nothing to 
offer the Lord but a mind trained in every 
other channel, and set in every other mold but 
that of the ministry. In youth the mind is 
pliable and elastic, but after middle age it is 
full grown and fixed in its habits, and cannot 
be easily made to flow into new and altogether 
different channels of activity. It may not be 
out of place here to remark, that it is a very 
common and serious fault of some of the 
churches to neglect, if not altogether discour- 
age, early talent, and many who should long- 
ago have been active and efficient in the min- 
istry, are overlooked and held back, perhaps, 
till middle age. 

But brother Pursly was not daunted by the 
peculiar difficulties and discouragements of his 
situation. Left to defend and build up the 
church where it was little known, and in the 
midst of a host of enemies, he threw himself 
into the work with the most commendable 
zeal, energy, and self-denial. Progress was 
made, and triumphs were achieved in the face 
of the greatest difficulties, and in spite of the 
most virulent opposition. Every conceivable 
slander w r hich opposition could invent, and 
every species of annoyance, even to flagrant 
violations of personal and corporate rights, 
were employed against the infant church and 
its members ; but, in the good providence of 
God, the gates of hell did not prevail against 
it. In the year 1866, six years after his elec- 
tion the to ministry, the church was fully or- 
ganized under his care, and the first communion 
held. Considering his opportunities, and the 
difficulties he had to encounter, the results of 
his fifteen years labor were gratifying and re- 
markable. Into his church one hundred and

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1884. 




fifty-two have been received by baptism, and 
six by letter, making a total membership of 
about one hundred and twenty-six souls. 
Some have removed to other parts, and many 
gone into the Church triumpaut, sustained in 
their last moments hy the everlasting consola- 
tions of the Gospel, through the untiring and 
effectual ministry of the beloved subject of 
this sketch. 

Thus we may see how a life entirely conse- 
crated to God is a power for good, and, though 
surrounded by the most unfavorable circum- 
stances, will not fail to produce the most 
glorious fruits, and achieve the grandest suc- 
cess. 

At different times efforts were made to build 
a house of worship, but, on account of the iso- 
lated position of the church, and the compara- 
tive poverty of its members, they uniformity 
failed until the spring of 1883, when a plan 
was adopted b}' which, in a few weeks, the 
sum of $800 was contributed, and the work of 
building begun. This was largely due to the 
liberality of conservative members of the Bo- 
tetourt and Roanoke churches, and may be 
properly considered as a testimonial of the 
great esteem in which brother Pursly was 
held by them. Often, upon communion occa- 
sions, the old Valley church had re-echoed 
with his earnest voice, and vast congregations 
had been held spell-bound \>y his powerful 
and spiritual discourses. Much of the spir- 
itual life of that people is due to his teaching, 
and they were glad of an opportunity to tes- 
tily their appreciation and make some suita- 
ble return. The good man was more than re- 
joiced at the result, and immediately set about 
the work of building. But about this time he 
seemed to receive a premonition of his ap- 
proaching end. Physicial disorders of long- 
standing, originally caused and constantly ag- 
gravated by hard labor, and exposure in his 
daily work, and in the vigorous prosecution of 
his ministry over an extended field, began now 
to be serious and alarming. Walking over the 
intended site of the proposed new church one 
day with a deacon brother, who had long been 
his trusted confident and counsellor, and the 
companion of his travels and labors, he ex- 



pressed the opinion that his life and pilgrim- 
age was drawing to its close, and gave some 
directions as to his affairs in the event of his 
being called away. Sadly enough for the 
church, and all who were bound to him by 
natural or spiritual ties, it was no passing 
dream, but the shadow of the solemn reality 
which did not long delay. He was soon pros- 
trated by a complication of maladies, but bore 
his protracted and painful illness with Chris- 
tian patience and fortitude. True to one of 
his most prominent characteristics, he thought 
not of himself, but his Master's work. 

For himself he had no fear or concern, but 
was anxious about the building of the church ; 
and his last intelligent utterances were upon 
that absorbiug subject. Soon after, his re- 
deemed and sanctified soul forsook its feeble 
earthly tenement, and soared to the eternal 
world. "Precious in the sight of the Lord 
is the death of his saints," "for they rest 
from their labors and their works do follow 
them." 

Our task would not be finished without giv- 
ing an outline of the most prominent features 
of his well rounded character, by which he was 
distinguished. His mental endowments were 
naturally of the highest order, and, though he 
was denied the benefits of a good education in 
early life, yet he tempered and sanctified his 
mind by a diligent study of the Bible, and 
such good books as Bunyan's " Pilgrim's Pro- 
gress." There was about him no marked pe- 
culiarity or excentricity. His faculties were 
all finely balanced. He was characterized by 
sound judgment: penetration: firmness, uni- 
ted with great moderation: deep earnestness, 
and unswerving perseverance: evenness and 
placidity of temper : deep piety and purity of 
life. His most prominent spiritual graces were 
charity and humility. If all who belong to the 
church loved it as he did, and had at the same 
time his meekness and lowliness, there would 
be no schism or discord in the sacred body. 
He appeared to the best advantage in the 
church meeting, reconciling some difference 
between members, reclaiming and restoring 
(not cutting Oft) some erring brother or sister, 
and pouring out of the deep fountain of his lov- 
ing heart, the most earnest and edifying oxhor- 
tations I have ever heard. He was among them 
as a father among his children, and ruled well, 
without seeming to rule at all. Nothing was 
more remarkable, or more edifying to contem- 
plate, than his untiring, unremitting zeal and 
faithfulness. His monthly circuit comprised

a distance of one hundred miles, and this he 
rarely ever failed to accomplish. 

When once an appointment was made, nei- 
ther cold nor heat, nor storm, nor rain, nor 
mud, nor snow and ice, could discourage or de- 
ter him. When duty called, no question of 
personal convenience or comfort was ever al- 
lowed to interfere. Rather than disappoint a 
congregation he would, if necessary, walk to 
his most distant appointments, and many a 
time the midnight hour has found him on the 
road. „ But this excessive labor and exposure 
told all too soon on his constitution, and now, 
when it seems that the church, in the hour of 
her trouble, can least afford to spare her no- 
blest sons, we mourn his loss. But the inscru- 
table wa} T s of Providence are wise and right, 
and though we may never more in this world 
look upon that noble, earnest face, lit up with 
that loving, benevolent smile, we may see him 
again, and meet, never more to part, in the 
kingdom of heaventy gloiy. 

B. C. Moomaw. 



WHAT IS A HOME? 



It requires more than a place in which one 
resides to make a home. That place may be 
very fine, supplied and adorned with every 
thing that can please the eye, or gratify the 
taste. It ma}' possess every requisite enjoy- 
ment, and eveiy resource for the necessities of 
life, and yet have no true home feeling, or 
home enjoyment in it. 

It is the warm and genial affection ; the ten- 
der sympathy ; the interest in each other's 
welfare ; the constant effort to please ; the 
avoidance of all unkinclness, severity, and ap- 
parent injustice in domestic intercourse ; these 
and kindred traits and qualities make the hab- 
itation of the family a home indeed. Such a 
habitation may be humble, its luxuries few, 
its resources limited, but it has the vitality, 
the attraction of home, and binds to itself by 
that attraction all the members of the house- 
hold. Its light gilds all the darker shades of 
life, and its sanctity hallows the memories of 
the past, when years are fled, and that habita- 
tion is the seat of domestic life no more. 



It is sad to think how few real homes the 
world holds. And all the sadder because 
where there are so few, there might be so many. 
How small an amount of kindness, of forbear- 
ance, of tender sympathy and sincere solici- 
tude, of approval, of soft words, of little arts 
to make the household attractive, something 
designed and adapted to each one, would trans- 
form a Babel of strife into an Eden of love, 
and make man} r a family residence now cold, 
comfortless, and wretched, a genuine home, 
w r here happiness dwells. 

When it is considered how much the char- 
acter of the individual, and all his future 
course, depends upon the character and influ- 
ences of his early home, the matter assumes 
new importance, and imposes- new responsibil- 
ities on all parents, to secure a true home for 
their children. Let it be plain and poor, if 
need be ; but let it be a home. Let its attrac- 
tions draw them, its attachments bind them to 
it. However destitute of other things, let 
them not lack a home. — Mother s Journal. 



SABBATH RAIN. 



What is there about Sabbath rain that renders 
it so disastrous to our congregations? The 
church that I attended last Sabbath is usually 
well filled, but the sprinkling in the morning 
made some seats vacant, and the rain in the 
afternoon thinned out the house, as if it had 
been a pestilence, carrying two out of every 
three men, women, and children. Rain on no 
other day or night produces such effects. Look 
at our market men, our merchant men, our la- 
boring men, our pleasure-seeking men and wo- 
men too. How few of them ever turn aside for 
any other rain except Sunday rain? So far as 
my own experience goes; and it goes some 
way touching this subject, I have not found Sun- 
day rain any wetter or more pestilential or dan- 
gerious to health, than rain at any other time. 
It may not be the duty of every one to go to 
the house of God through rain and snow storms ; 
some are in feeble health and able to go only in 
fair weather. Still,' does not a fearful account 
await many who are seen in the sanctuary only 
in fair weather? 



There is food for much reflection in the 
Arab proverb, "All sunshine makes the 
desert. 



To correct an evil which already exists is 
not so wise as to foresee and prevent it.

THE OLDEST BIBLE MANUSCRIPTS. 



The two most ancient manuscripts of the Bi- 
ble known are the Codex Sinaticus of the Imperi- 
al Library at St. Petersburg, and the Codex 
Vaticant Library at Rome, both are believed to 
have been written about the middle of the 
fourth century, A. D. The Sinaticus, so called 
before it was obtained (in 1859) from the con- 
vent of St. Catharine on Mount Sinai, is sup- 
posed by Tischendorf, its discoverer, to be one 
of the fifty copies of the Scriptures which the 
Emperor Constantine directed to be made for 
Byzantium in the year 331, under the care of 



Eusebius of Caesarea. It consists of very fine 
vellum, made either from the skins of antelopes 
or of asses, each leaf being 14^ inches high by 
13^ inches wide. The early history of the 
Vatican manuscript is not known, but it appears 
in the first catalogue of the Vatican Library in 
1485. It is a quarto volume, containing 146 
leaves of fine thin vellum, each io}4 inches 
high and 10 broad. Poth manuscripts are writ- 
ten in Greek uncials, or capital letters, are with- 
out spaces between the words, and have no 
marks of punctuation. 



Wisdom is oftentimes nearer when we stoop 
than when we soar. — Wordswoith. 



Sun dials mark only the bright hours. 
Would it not be well if most people could 
imitate them.
